Located on a constrained urban site in Seattle’s Denny Triangle, this addition to Amazon’s Rufus 2.0 campus sets a new precedent for the company’s evolving vertical workplace. A dramatic communicating stair combined with an offset core result in open-plan lease spaces that support flexible planning while encouraging vertical movement between floors of the 17-story tower. Vertical circulation, building services, and an integrated braced-frame structure are placed at the perimeter of the tower, resulting in unobstructed floorplates and a distinctive architectural form. The result is a vertical workplace that embraces the design inspiration of the Urban Treehouse.
